Does virus exist for Mobile phones using Android OS

IT is right that whenever anything becomes popular is a victim of commercialism, and that means money, and if there is money, you can expect just about anything. Some time ago we wrote about the virus in Android, but repeat it again. NO VIRUS FOR ANDROID, no, absolutely not, however much you want to sell the bike or companies invent tricks to sell their solutions. does anyone till yet found any security threat for android mobile OS? Well i know android is based on linux kernel so there are less chances but a wide knowledge would be useful.

Re: Does virus exist for Mobile phones using Android OS

Kaspersky just detect the first virus running on Android. It's just a coincidence of life that has just launched its own anti-virus for Android as well. We all believe it not? The fact is that being real or not this virus, if it has detected a vulnerability where the phone using their own API Android and its entire ecosystem of applications could send SMS without confirmation by the user. This is certainly very dangerous. However, this virus has not been produced yet in society,

Yep, I do not think it worth paying for an antivirus for a mobile OS that has almost malicious applications and it's over, most likely not going to recognize because they operate antivirus databases. A computer virus is malware that seeks to alter the normal operation of your computer without permission or user awareness If you also put an example that you can send sms without your consent, or make calls or use your work without you knowing about my block with me definition VIRUS.

I think we forgot something very important. Not for nothing, but when you run a. Exe, a. Deb, a. Sh or. Apk, you are giving permission, or not knowing what the application, is installed on your computer or device. Rather than denying the existence of viruses, malware or Trojan as is the case, should be alerted of the danger of installing applications is not known very well where they come out and give permissions to" tuntun "or" now we will deny applications that are downloaded, mostly of payment from other places other than the app Market.
